ACM Symposium on Information, Computer & Communication Security (ASIACCS  2009)
10 - 12 March 2009, Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour, Sydney, Australia

Visa applications

Under Australia's universal visa system, all visitors to Australia must have a valid visa to travel to and enter Australia (other than New Zealand and Norfolk Island passport holders, who will normally be issued a visa on arrival in Australia unless there are character or health concerns). There are many visa options available to people wishing to visit Australia. The appropriate visa option will depend, amongst other things, on the person's purpose for visiting Australia.

Visas for specific purposes

For guidance on the visa options that maybe most suitable to conference participants, please see Business Visitor Visa Information.

NB: Visa applicants must demonstrate that they meet all the legislative requirements for an Australian visa. It is strongly recommended that visa applications are lodged well in advance of a participant's intended date of travel (6-8weeks before).

For background information in relation to visas for people to come to Australia for a business-related visa, please see Business Visitor Visa options

Health and character requirements

All visa applicants will be required to meet certain character and health requirements as part of their visa application process. These requirements exist to uphold the safety and security of the Australian community. The following documents provide further information on these requirements.
